OK, we're missing a couple of people from Deadline #2. I have this problem on TVCH too. I think everyone is used to my NFL game with the deadlines being kickoff. So, I guess I'll just go with kickoff on the first game of the day, preferably under the deadline cluster. If I go with game day deadlines with each game, I'm gonna put way too much work for myself trying to keep track of all those deadlines! LOL.

Sorry for the delay in the results. I had some kind of error in the formula on my Excel workbook, and had a heck of a time figuring out where it was. Actually, I had a heck of a time trying to sit down and focus on it to find the error, cause as soon as I started to focus, My Mom and my dog Gidget took turns calling me away from the computer to complete one task after another for them. In fact, it’s taken me over an hour just to type up this little note in Word ) so I can copy/paste it across three boards) cause they keep calling on me. LOL.

Anyway, it would probably behoove you all to double check and make sure you got the score you thought you were getting. If you come across any errors, please don't hesitate to let me know.

You’ll find the recaps to the game here:
RECAPS

If you get a pop up window asking for a network password, just click on “cancel” and it should open up an Excel workbook for you.

If you don’t have Excel, you can get a free Excel Reader from Microsoft here: Excel Reader


The recaps for all three boards are in the same workbook, with each board having their own tab in the workbook, and a tab for combining all the boards to compare yourselves against the folks from the other boards.

So, on to the results!
